Can anyone help RE UC?
Hello new to forum needing some guidance I currently receive ESA support PIP enhanced for both , My husband works and also takes care of me , he's due to be made redundant in 4 weeks- meanwhile he is also in agony with chronic OA in hips and back . I have been told we have to claim UC , but I don't know this system at all I have been ill and disabled for over 25 yrs on the old style benefits. Can he claim carers and ESA contribution based benefits for himself? , as he's now in agony with his hips and back and looking for any work at this stage will be futile until he gets surgery, which could be next year , I don't understand UC at all, can anyone give me advice please - Thanks Katye
